The Graduate School

Leave of Absence

Students who are withdrawing from a term and plan to return in a subsequent term, or students who are planning to not enroll for a future term should complete a leave of absence form.

If a graduate student requests, and is granted a leave of absence, the student must return in the term specified on the leave of absence form. If a student fails to return in the agreed upon term, then he/she must reapply for admission. During a leave of absence, students will not be able to use university resources.
